Adhering to the same easy-to-use format as previous editions, the Fourth Edition of this text provides timely and insightful information into the principles of modern anesthesiology, office-based anesthesia, hazards and safety in the operating room, and the importance of cost-effective testing prior to administration of anesthesia. This comprehensive resource includes new chapters on the hazards of working in the OR, up-to-date information on how to prevent and manage OR fires if they occur, information on the newest guidelines for preoperative preparation including new fasting guidelines, administration of anesthesia for minimally invasive surgical techniques, and drug interactions.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for previous editions:
"This edition brings this work to a new standard of currency and completeness. The anesthesiologist seeking a reference text that contains information in a format easy to use and comprehensive in content would do well to consider this as a first choice.
...the editors state their goal for this text: to `supply both residents and experienced anesthesiologists with a contemporary textbook of anesthesiology, emphasizing rapid acquisition of information pertinent for patient management in a comprehensive, up-to-date, single-volume book'...The editors have met their goal...
Rom A. Stevens
This is the third edition of a multiauthored book, last published in 1989, that covers the entire specialty of anesthesiology. A total of 100 authors contributed, and approximately 30 percent of the chapters are new since the second edition. The purpose is to provide residents and experienced practitioners with a contemporary textbook of anesthesiology, emphasizing rapid acquisition of information pertinent to patient care. By and large, these objectives are met. The target audience is stated to be both residents and experienced practitioners. However, the most likely readers of this book will probably be anesthesia residents. All the authors are recognized experts in their various subspecialty areas of anesthesiology. The quality and number of illustrations are adequate. The references are up-to-date. The table of contents and index are adequate. The overall appearance of the book is adequate. There are no particularly unique features of this book. This book will prove most useful to anesthesia residents studying for their board examinations, because it provides an abbreviated overview of the entire specialty. Since the previous edition was published in 1989, many changes have occurred in the specialty, necessitating this update. I highly recommend it to anesthesia residents as well as to departmental libraries.
Highlighting new paradigms for OR management and cost containment, this new edition contains 57 chapters by anesthesiologists at university hospitals across the US. Topics include hazards such as latex allergy; drug interactions and anesthesia; newer monitoring techniques, including transesophageal echocardiography and transcranial Doppler; anesthesia for minimally invasive procedures; anesthesia for the geriatric patient; anesthesia for patients with rare and coexisting diseases; office-based anesthesia; management of acute postoperative care; and value-based anesthesia practice, resource utilization, and operating room management.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey L. Apfelbaum, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine)
Description: In this fifth edition, the authors and editors provide an extraordinarily comprehensive overview of the medical specialty of anesthesiology with particular attention to the basic principles of anesthesia practice, pharmacology in anesthesia practice, preoperative preparedness for the delivery of anesthesia, intraoperative management of anesthesia, and the postoperative management of patients having undergone an anesthetic. The previous edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The editors have stated that they believe that this edition has remained faithful to its original goal: "to develop a textbook that supports efficient and rapid acquisition of knowledge." However, they acknowledge that in order to meet this objective, they have specifically developed a multifaceted systemic approach; this book serves as the foundation and reference for the other education tools in the Clinical Anesthesia series: the Handbook of Clinical Anesthesia, 5th edition, Clinical Anesthesia for the PDA, 2nd edition, Review of Clinical Anesthesia, 3rd edition and the Lippincott Interactive Anesthesia Library on CD-ROM, 3rd edition.
Audience: This comprehensive textbook is designed to serve as a daily reference for students, anesthesia trainees, practicing anesthesiologists, and other physicians who are in need of a reference of perioperative care. For trainees, the book can be read as a whole, and will provide in-depth background that will give the trainee an entry-level foundation for life-long learning. For practicing anesthesiologists, individual chapters are designed to stand on their own and can provide thorough references enabling the practitioner to adequately problem solve.
Features: The book is organized into six major sections, with the first three ("Introduction to Anesthesia Practice," "Base Principles of Anesthesia Practice," and "Basic Principles of Pharmacology and Anesthesia Practice") designed to provide a foundation for didactics. The last three sections ("Preparing for Anesthesia," "Management of Anesthesia," and "Postanesthesia and Consultant Practice") are designed to provide more detailed information about perioperative patient management. The editors have assembled 117 authors with expertise in both basic science and clinical medicine. The collective expertise of these authors makes them exceptionally well qualified authorities in the field. This edition is totally redesigned from the previous edition, and includes both new formatting and information. For example, each chapter begins with a detailed outline and key points. New chapters include disaster preparedness and weapons of mass destruction, genomics, bariatric surgery, and office-based anesthesia. Additionally, each author seems to emphasize applicable areas of importance to patient safety.
Assessment: This is an extraordinarily well-written and comprehensive text of outstanding quality. It is an invaluable addition to the library of any student, trainee, or practitioner of the medical specialty of anesthesiology.
